Soul singer Kenny Thomas has launched an £80,000 fundraising appeal to help save his daughter after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Four-year-old Christina Thomas was diagnosed last month with a high grade glioma situated in the brain stem.

Mr Thomas, a 1990s soul singer who now lives in Norfolk, has set up a JustGiving page to find an alternative treatment for his daughter.

Recalling the diagnoses on the fundraising page Mr Thomas said: 'Within two hours of receiving this devastating news I found myself sitting in the back of an ambulance with Christina being driven at high speed, blue lights flashing, on our way to a neurology hospital.'

The cancer is so aggressive it can't be operated on or removed and even a biopsy is not without serious risk.

The page states: 'Christina's prognosis is poor but with your help we want to do our best to find alternative treatment for her here in the UK or abroad.'

So far more than £36,000 has been raised but the target is £80,000.
